grateful heart monday

A Grateful Heart (+ week-long linkup!)

September 7, 2015

Hi, all! Happy Monday! I hope most of you are still enjoying this long holiday weekend and are relaxing with family & friends! Christian and I are continuing to do just that but I couldn’t not show up for Grateful Heart Monday with you all.

TODAY, I am grateful for: 
Our new home. Remember on Friday how I shared that X and I would soon be looking for a home to buy? That very morning we put a bid on our “dream house” and less than 24 hours later we were signing the contract. CRAZY fast, holy cow! I still can’t believe it. A few of you were under the impression that we were leaving Nashville but that’s not the case. Our new house is actually in the neighborhood across from where we are now, which I’m hoping will make moving go a bit easier?! I’m looking forward to sharing the story of how we, quite literally, stumbled upon this house right before we left for our trip to Indiana this weekend 🙂
Family & Friends. While summer may be coming to a close, my family sure knows how to send it off with one heck of a party! We spent all day yesterday with extended family and friends, playing in the sunshine (turns out I’m really bad at the game Bags – or “Cornhole” depending on where you’re from – like so bad that no one wants to be on my team), eating way too much, and laughing until we cried. And isn’t that the best kind of party? I also spent an evening this past weekend with my bffs – I love so much that after 20 years, we still have so much fun together and genuinely love to spend time together. They are the sisters I never had 🙂

Whether you’re relaxing today, traveling, or had to hightail it into work today (I’m sorry!), I hope you’ll take a few minutes to reflect on at least ONE thing you’re grateful for. And I’d like to hear about it, either in the comments below or in a post shared with this linkup. Then, if you have some time, check out some of the other Grateful Heart posts shared here – gratitude is a powerful thing, something I believe is meant to be shared. XO!

Link up below and join the rest of us in starting each day this week with a grateful heart. Not enough time to write a Grateful Heart post today? No worries! This linkup will be open until Friday!
